Diana Cavallo

Student Aide, Publishing Office

I graduated from Pace University, Pleasantville in May of 2012, with a Bachelor of Arts in English and Communications, and a minor in Creative Writing.  I’m very proud to say that at Commencement, I was given the highest honor awarded to a graduating senior, the Trustee Award.  During my undergraduate education, I was the editor of the Honors College newsletter, SCHOLASTICA, and contributor to VOX  Literary & Arts magazine. I have held three internship positions, two within the publishing at The Association of American Publishers and Nancy Yost Literary Agency.   I am still undecided as to whether I would like to work in magazine or book publishing, but am very interested in the editorial, publicity and marketing fields.  Ultimately, I would like to become a novelist and children’s author.

 

 

Jennifer Clare

Graduate Assistant, Pace Press

I graduated from Ramapo College with a BA in Communication Arts concentrating my studies in writing.  I have had many great internship experiences working for TWIST Magazine, Nickelodeon, Cosmopolitan, and now Pace University Press. My internships have opened up my career interests to include editorial, production, design, and marketing in both books and magazines. I also have a lot of interest in digital aspects of publishing.

 

 

 

Trey Prothro

Graduate Assistant, Pace Press

My name is Trey Prothro, and I’m originally from St. Louis, Missouri. In May 2011, I graduated with a Bachelor of Journalism in Magazine Editing from the University of Missouri at Columbia. While in undergrad, I had the opportunity to work as a staff reporter for the Columbia Missourian, staff writer and section editor for Vox magazine, editorial intern at ALIVE Magazine (a monthly lifestyle publication in St. Louis), and TIWIMUTA magazine (an annual art fashion magazine published by Andre Walker and based in New York City). My publishing passion is with magazines. Although most of my experience and background is on the editorial side of publishing, I would like to learn more about the business aspects of publishing to be an overall more strategic publisher in the future. I’m new to the city, and this is my first semester in the M.S. Publishing program. I’m beyond excited to be here!

Thank You Note- Jennifer Clare

The Publishing Award is an extremely great honor and it means so much to be a recipient. It represents the school’s recognition of my work, my dedication, and most of all my passion for publishing. It is even more meaningful knowing that I am being honored by people who have guided me in my education, watched me as I grew with the program, and supported me in all my endeavors. I want to thank all the Professors and Staff of the Publishing Program, along with Dr. Goldleaf and Dr. Hussey at Pace University Press, for teaching me the in’s and out’s of publishing, giving me valuable hands-on experience, and always pushing me to strive for greatness. I want to extend a special thank you to Professor Raskin for giving me the opportunity to participate in this program and for his constant words of encouragement. I have learned so much from everyone at Pace and look forward to applying all I have learned as I take the first steps towards a fulfilling and successful career at Random House in Digital Marketplace Development.
